Easter message from our Pastor,  Father Bill Donohue He Is Risen

At this Glorious time of celebration of the Lord’s resurrection we rejoice in the renewed hope and promise that Easter brings to us.
May the peace of the risen Christ be with you at Easter and always.

Please know that you and your families, and our parish and school, are in my daily prayers.

We welcome all visitors who have joined us for any of our Holy Week or Easter Liturgies.

With renewed joy in the Resurrection, let us join in prayerful remembrance of St. A’s parishioners and benefactors who have gone before us to meet Our Risen Lord this past year.

I join Fr. David Jenuwine; Deacons Frank Dahl, Joel Momsen, John Dermody, Jesse DeLuna and Peter Mathews; Acolyte William Guriguis, Sister Peggy Cruise and our entire parish staff in wishing you a blessed and joyful Easter.

Rev. William P. Donahue, Pastor

Thanks to all who participated in the Holy Week planning and services. It takes an extraordinary effort by so many to make Holy Week so special and meaningful for all. We extend a special thank you to our musicians for the

beautiful music all week, for our decorators who took us from nothing, to palms, the Easter Lilies and more. To all who ministered at our service and to those who donate the beautiful flowers and plants, please know that you helped make this an extraordinary week in our parish. Many thanks to all who helped and participated.

St. Apollinaris Mission

St. Apollinaris is a welcoming Catholic Christian Community united by faith in God, nourished by Jesus through both the Word and the Eucharist and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

We invite you to join us in meeting the spiritual, educational, and physical needs of our growing parish family and community through prayer, faith formation, evangelization, stewardship, hospitality, and social justice.

Religious Education

”Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them…” Matthew 19:14

As your child ages, his/her understanding of our faith will grow and mature with continued faith formation. Our Catholic faith has so much to offer that, with yearly education in their faith, your child will grow in their love and understanding of our loving God with each year. St. Apollinaris has much to offer our children.
